Dates for your diary

As a teacher, there are a lot of things to remember throughout the year. We’ve created a round up below of some special dates and not-to-be-missed events to ensure your qualification delivery is a breeze.

Events and webinars

Our Curriculum team run a number of events and training throughout the year to support and enhance your delivery. Find out more about these events or request bespoke training on the V Certs events page on QualHub.

External Assessment deadlines

It’s important to remind yourself of the entry cut off dates and the external assessment window you wish to enter your learners on. You can check these dates in our latest external assessment window timetable found on QualHub. If a cut-off date has passed, you may still be able to make entries but you might be subject to a late entry fee.

Speak to our Customer Support team by calling 0191 239 8000 or you can email [email protected]

Schedule your EQA visit

You can access a wealth of support and guidance from your EQA during a visit. This is especially important if your learners are undertaking the synoptic project for the first time. You’ll have access to 2 free visits from your EQA and if you’d like to request further support, you can request one on QualHub, however, this visit will be chargeable.

Reasonable Adjustments

A reminder to centres to make sure that all your Reasonable Adjustment requests have been submitted ready for the spring assessments and beyond. We accept JCQ’s Access Arrangements Online approval reports as the supporting evidence, but do please remember that a separate application to NCFE is required.

When it comes to self-care, research and data implies the most important element is sleep. If we are to be productive in whatever our life demands and be able to face the challenges we are confronted with, then sleep is the cornerstone of being able to do this and stay well.

There are a whole host of reasons why you might encounter challenging students, and often, the reasons behind their behaviour aren’t entirely clear. Even when you can identify a cause, that on the surface appears to be more obvious, such as recent bereavement, displacement or physical illness, it doesn’t necessarily make challenging behaviour easier to tackle.

In the workplace, poor mental health can often be a consequence of work-related stress. The effective management of stress has been high on the agenda in schools for over a decade and stress has been identified as the most common health and safety problem in the UK.

Following nested suite programmes, like those from NCFE, can help with success, retention and achievement data by supporting learners at risk with appropriate drop off points in the year, and providing progression options for those who are excelling.
